Dry, chapped lips are a no-no for every age; your lips need as much nourishment as the rest of your face. Avon Simply Pretty Flavor Savers Lip Balm solves the problem pretty well, coming in three classic flavors: Strawberry, Peach and Cherry. It moisturizes my lips and provides essential sunscreen so that my puckers would not get baked in the sun. I also found out that when coupled with a toothbrush, it makes lip exfoliation a breeze since it softens dry skin and makes it easier to come off. Result: smooth kissable lips.
One of Avon’s classic products, it has become my favorite since I encountered it in high school. It leaves lips glossy with a hint of color, and can be worn alone or under lipstick or gloss. The sweet fruity flavor and smell makes you want to reapply it again and again, which my girlfriends often did. I dig the Strawberry flavor because it smells like strawberry icing on my favorite donuts; plus, the boyfriend loves the taste of it on my lips. I also love that it can be applied discreetly even in public when touching up with lip color is impossible, due to its ultra sheer color. Simply swipe it on and no one will notice that you have primped in public. All they will notice is your healthy, plump lips!
Avon Simply Pretty Flavor Savers Lip Balm goes for a reasonable price of PhP 120 each, but as Avon often have their products on sale, you can even get this fruity yummy gloss for as low as PhP 69. A real steal, if you ask me. However, there is a minor downside on using this product: if you get carried away on reapplying this balm, some waxy film starts accumulating on the sides of your lips. Nothing that a swipe of hankie could not handle, though. All in all, the product gives good value for your money, given its size, color and moisture pay-off, plus its delicious flavor.
I definitely recommend this product to girls of all ages (I mean ALL ages, really) to experience moisturized lips anytime, anywhere, and to enjoy a mood boost brought about by the yummy, totally lick-able flavors that will take you to your happy place.
Over the years of experimenting in search for the solution to my pimple problem. Last March, I brought home the Clinique Skin Care Solution No.3 hoping this will change all my bad pimple days. It is designed for oily skin and has 3 steps. Excited to use this regimen for the first time, I tried it that same night. First is the facial foam, i noticed that it conditions my skin, no bubbles and no smell facial foam.
After foaming, I applied the exfoliator – solution no.2, I noticed that in my first few tries of this product, I saw dead skin debris on my cotton swabs!. The Clinique belief is that our face needs to exfoliate everyday to prevent clogging of pores and to have a clear smooth skin!. After letting my face dry comes step 3,the moisturizer which I believe is not just the barrier that protects my skin from irritation but also to keep my skin well hydrated.
I can say that this product really gives the bang for the buck! Getting the best facial foam, the best exfoliator and the best moisturizer (and this will turn out to be of different brands) I usually end up spending almost P 8,000.00, but with the Clinique Skin Care Regimen it’s just P 5,000.00. That’s the amount of money I can stretch to almost two months even if I use this product twice a day.
After the fourth day, I can see that my skin become smoother, my pimples have dried up without actually looking dry. It also banishes the redness of my pimples, which I believe is because of the continuous exfoliation. In my case, my skin have noticeable pores due to frequent facial, pimples are clearing up but the product cannot tighten up my pores. I’ve been using the Clinique Pore Minimizer for 2 months now and I can see the improvements and I am really satisfied with it.
I highly recommend this regimen to people with recurrent acne breakouts, whose skin end up getting too dry or too red without positive results from using too many different brands. It’s time to kiss that acne goodbye without losing an arm or a leg.
I hate to admit that though I am still in my mid-twenties, aches and pains sometimes get me. Having suffered from migraine, I always made sure I have something with menthol to soothe the pains and get rid of the occasional nausea. That is how I discovered Jade Cranes Menthol Stick. Pretty much solved my needs- I used to lug around bottles of green liniment that would stain my clothes and leave a greasy film on my papers. Now I just have a pocket-size stick that I could carry around like I would do a lip balm.
The good thing about Jade Cranes Menthol Stick is, besides going on clear when applied; it does not have a common liniment-ish smell. It even smells like a particular brand of candy, fresh and minty. I find it great since I don’t have to camouflage its smell with perfume because it is pleasant to the nose. No worries about smelling “old” and spilling liniment especially when commuting. I love that the package allows me to take it out anytime, anywhere because it looks like just a lip balm; it is inconspicuous enough to use anywhere. Another plus: it lasts a long, long time. Just a little dab will get a long way in treating insect bites, tiny cuts, even toothache; and if you’re raring to get a whole body massage using the stick, you will be surprised at its potency-a few rubs is all you need, with its uplifting at the same time soothing effects lasting for a long time.
The price, when compared to other liniments, is a bit higher, but for me the convenience and the effect outweigh the additional pesos you have to shell out for this product. Just a few things to watch out about this product- dropping can shatter the precious menthol stick to pieces. The coolness also gets really intense when you are sweating, but eventually mellows down into pleasurable tingling effect. Nevertheless, the aforementioned reasons make Jade Crane a cut above the rest.
Would I recommend Jade Cranes Menthol Stick to everyone? Certainly! Remember that there are so many products on the market, and finding one that really suits you is like finding a needle in a haystack. It’s a great product for a good price and most especially, it delivers. It made me so glad to have found this product, and I am sure it would also do others good too. Jade Cranes Menthol Stick is readily available in most pharmacies in two sizes (small and large) for your choosing.
Caronia’s Summer Collection comes on three shades; Rosy Glow, Blue Chill and Fresh Mint. The Rosy Glow matches girly and sweet personality and has a pinkish shade. Blue Chill is the only frosted one on the three and sure to give classy looks because it has a shiny finish. And, the last one, Fresh Mint gives light, cool and breezy looks, which is definitely the most perfect nail polish shade for summer.
Painting my nails is one thing I am so crazy about. I so happen to fall for nail polishes, I love to experiment and play on different shades. I always try to match my nail color to my mood or to my outfit. I do love to have my nails polished pretty often mainly for the impression to look glam and for the purpose of my hands to look neat. My family and friends are used to my lovely nails. My sis gave me a set of Caronia Summer Collection. I love Caronia proof is half of my collections were Caronia. But I was quite skeptical to wear any of the three colors because I was thinking the shades might wouldn’t match my morena skin tone. Whenever I shop, I make sure to pick the right shade for me.
Of course she radically pursued the nail polish and also to help her not to feel she just wasted cash, I tried it. I went for Rosy Glow. I opted to add myself some feminine looks and that is the only color closer to my favourite color pink. I usually do my own nails and do not hire someone to do for me because I am too meticulous that I will just end up doing my nails again if I don’t like how it is done. After the session, I so love the result. The Rosy Glow shade have not made me look tacky, but created an accent to my hands. No regrets.
It complements my morena skin. So, I am pretty sure that this Rosy Glow Shade fits morena and fair skin types. I always see to it to add this shade to my favourite collection.

The Maybelline Eye & Lip Makeup Remover instantly removes all eye and lip makeup, even waterproof and non-transfer ones. It has a formulation which suits sensitive eyes. It is especially very gentle for delicate skin around the eye area. You will see the liquid inside the bottle, it has a blue oil based formulation so you have to shake well before using. Just soak a cotton pad with the lotion and apply on your eyes or lips to start removing your makeup.
I just passed through one of the Maybelline counters at the mall, then noticed that this makeup remover only cost Php 99.00 for the 40ml bottle. So, knowing that it is affordable and manufactured by a well known cosmetic brand, I instantly bought it without having second thoughts.
I have been using this particular makeup remover for over a year now. The reason that I keep repurchasing is simple, it is very affordable and it works. This makeup remover has a very mild and pleasant scent, like baby oil. On regular days, I just soak a bit of the product on my cotton pad, pat it on my eye for a few seconds then gently swipe off my waterproof eyeliner and mascara away. The only downside to this is that you will need a bit more of it on your cotton to remove all traces of eye makeup, especially if you occasionally use false eyelashes. So, the 40ml bottle only lasted for about a month. If you do decide to give this a try just buy the 120ml bottle, it is still affordable at PhP 198.00.
I have tried quite a few makeup removers from both drugstore and high end brands with different formulations, so I must say I am surprised. This oil-based makeup remover is effective considering the price. So if you are on a beauty budget, I would definitely recommend the Maybelline Eye & Lip Makeup Remover.
